Ethyn Shumway was named the BEACON Academic Student of the Month for November at Helen M. Knight Elementary School.

The third-grader is the son of Travis and Brittney Shumway and is a student in JoLynn Torgerson’s class.

Torgerson described Ethyn as a hard-worker and an upbeat student.

      “Ethyn is a very pleasant student, and always comes to BEACON with a smile,” she said. “He works diligently at each assignment. Ethyn is a great example of cooperation and a positive attitude.”

Parry said: “Ethyn not only comes to BEACON with a smile, but continues to smile even when he’s working on something difficult.”
